Debris which could belong to a missing Malaysia Airlines plane is understood to have been flown into Paris.
What is thought to be part of a wing was washed up on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion.
It is due to be examined at a military unit in Toulouse, which specialises in analysing aviation wreckage.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished last year, en-route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with 239 passengers and crew onboard.
“We have sent two teams, one team to France and another team to Reunion island to look for more debris and more wreckage at the island,” said Liow Tiong Lai, Malaysian Transport Minister.
The suspected wing debris could help bring an end to 16 months of lingering uncertainty for relatives of those who were on the Boeing 777 jet. A luggage fragment is also due to be examined.
But there is a warning that the final resting place of the plane will still be very difficult to establish.
